    Armory add defense to stats

    Hey

    Would be cool to have defense rating showing on the stats, like ingame.

    +1. I like knowing when someone is gemming "RNG"(essentially) and is probably a bad tank.

    Better add the combined outcome of defense+resilience - the overall reduced chance to be critically hit.
    You can't judge someone's cap just by defense rating
    Or no - better don't bother at all with such useless stuff
    The cap is well known for any difficulty, also there are addons which can do such calculations ingame when you're inspecting someone (if you're some sort of fanatic RL)

    Gosh.. allways same thing. Resilience = damage from players. Not from PvE.
    So make defence and resilience. Maby PvP combined. (There is allways 1 paladin calling him self def capped when using pvp gear in resi.)

    Critical Hit immunity for a level 80 player against a Raid Boss can also be achieved by raising Resilience to 5.6%, being a resilience rating of 460.
    If the combined critical hit reduction from Defense and Resilience together total 5.6% that will also make the player immune to critical hits from Raid Bosses.

    Inform yourself before make such comments. From all 3 factors presented by the resilience, only damage reduction is only for players. Defense is used to avoid critical hits by bosses and nothing else

    Resilience is a character attribute that reduces all damage taken from players and their pets or minions. This is the bread and butter PvP stat. The reduction has no effect on the damage taken from mobs. Says every source for 3.3.5. So If you find something then please.

    Resilience does decrease the chance to receive a critical strike in PvE. It also reduced damage taken on early retail Wrath, but that was nerfed. The two are separate functions.

    Last time I had a tank hard gemming defense, going for like 600 def in ToGC25, he kept dying by adds like no tomorrow. Ever since then I started paying attention to tanks and their gemming defense or not - every single tank who went for weird def rating + xyz gems to satisfy insignificant socket bonuses has been a disaster for me. So yes, seeing as people have solidified def rating gemming as a symptom of idiocy, I'd like to be able to see that in armory instead of adding yet another addon to my already pointlessly large addons list, or doing quik mafs on the spot...

    Perhaps you've seen avoidance warrior which is stat to go on ToGC25 Anub fight as off. Defense = +Block for warriors, but that doesn't make you immortal if you are bad player. One wrong move like rotating a bit (not able to block) and you will get one shotted by the adds.

    Resilience will take less points to get you to the cap than defense rating so some people with lower ilvl items or few dps items prefer to use 20 resilience chest enchant instead pure hp, few gems on items then pure stamina. sacrificing the 0.xx% dodge/parry from defense is fine in any scenario because this is not 2011 when you were able to get dual wield dk to 50% parry rating and become immortal in icc.
    This is wotlk - you can dress up or spend your talent points in multiple ways. The so-called meta is bull**** and even nowdays people still break the charts with experimental builds and specific equipment for them

    Nope. Was a prot paladin with enough gear to get def cap just from the gear itself, yet he kept hard gemming for it and in turn get oneshot by adds.
    But back to the point. Seeing *an accurate* printout of defense on the armory would be a nice addition.

    You need 668 defence rating to reach 5,6% and you need it for raiding, or even for HC.
    -Druid get 6% from talents.

    Going over that is a waste, but crit immue is not all, armor, HP and general avoidance is also needed :) but crit immue is a must!

    general avoidance is trash, and is only good on icecrown in 30% raids when your hp is well over 80k and it takes like 8 seconds of not being healed AND not using any CDS to die as a tank, and 1 holy light from an hpala will pop you back to full hp anyways.

    Flat Damage Reduction + Hp/Armor + crit cap is how a good tank should gem/gear for.

    No. Nobody gems avoidance for ICC. Maybe some bit clueless fresh tanks, until they're told to not gem for avoidance. Gemming for defense is ok only if you need to reach the cap, otherwise not.
